I am the motivator, coach, mentor and a sort of housekeeper, of our team. I have a Masterís Degree in Literature and another Masters in education. As life progressed I picked up a few Diplomas in School Management and English Teaching/ Having come across the ThinkQuest challenge during my browsing sessions I asked for volunteers from our school to have a go at it. These are the students who were selected and knit into a team out of the hundreds who put their hands up.

Having lived in an atmosphere of piety and Veda chanting they were keen to probe the subject further and it was they who provided most of the facts for the pages.
